The coach will depart Arundel Gate/ Howard St at 8.00am. We are going to Much Wenlock and both the A and the B group will be dropped off to start the walks at a lay by 8 miles away.
The A group walk. will be circular. We will be walking up and over the edge, visiting the village of Rushbury, rejoining the edge to go to Wilderhope Manor (NT) and returning via Stanway Coppice to be picked up at the start. The Walk will be 10.5 miles With lots of up and down. Mostly there are good paths and tracks but there are some muddy sections and uneven paths.
The B walk will take a gradual ascent towards the edge for an early lunch at Wilderhope Manor. We will the join the Jack Mytton Way and the Shropshire way to go along the edge, descending to Much Wenlock via Blakeway Hollow. This is around 9 miles but with relatively little ascent and good paths and tracks.
The A group will have a brief coffee stop early on the route, but the B group will be going straight to Wilderhope Manor for an early lunch stop. The B walk wil therefore have coffee on the bus before the walk. If you are considering doing the B walk it is suggested that you take drink and snack (but not your rucksack) on to the coach.
By the time the walkers get back to Much Wenlock there are few places still serving food. We have therefore arranged with one pub The Talbot for food to be served. Anyone who wants to eat can order from a limited menu on the bus and hopefully we will be served promptly.
We will be leaving Much Wenlock no later than 6.00pm
if anyone prefers to stay in Much Wenlock and not join the walks. Wenlock Priory will be open, there are some open cafes and a variety of short walks. We will have some information on the coach.
